Resin Moisture

Resin Moisture Can Determine Quality

In the wood processing industry, the addition of resin is a critical step in the process. As such, it is paramount to have the ability to accurately determine the resin moisture content of the base wood product before the addition of resin. Introducing a resin when the moisture content is too high will reduce the bonding capabilities of the resin, introduce potential safety and equipment problems, and degrade the properties of the finished product. Monitoring resin content and resin coating thickness are also essential in optimizing product quality and reducing costs related to product waste.

With MoistTech, you receive the benefit of 40 years of experience related to moisture sensors. This experience, in conjunction with the input of industry partners, has culminated in the development of the IR-3000W moisture sensor. The IR-3000W is precisely designed to accurately measure moisture levels in the harsh environments found in the wood processing industry. Utilizing the IR-3000W to optimize process control improves your energy utilization, enhances product quality, elevates productivity, and results in decreased production costs.

MoistTech’s IR3000: Perfect for Resin Moisture Measurement

MoistTech’s IR3000 excels in resin moisture measurement. Its applications in the wood processing industry extend to resin moisture control, coating thickness measurement, and temperature monitoring — crucial for resin coatings in chipboard, bonding, impregnated wood, adhesives, and varnishes.

At MoistTech, our staff has a wealth of knowledge regarding the specifics of resin moisture in wood processing. Our sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms, and sensor optical requirements are pre-set at the factory. Once installed, you can continuously monitor the process and control moisture content in real-time. MoistTech’s equipment stands above the competition in a variety of ways:

      • Incorporates a reliable non-drift optical design.
      • Is designed for non-contact measurement.
      • Enables process monitoring and control that is continuous.
      • Permits the detection and adjustment of process variation in real-time.
      • Provides ± 0.05% moisture accuracy.
      • Depending on the nature of the coating, provides coating accuracy measurement that varies from 0.1 to 0.01 microns.
      • Has a zero to ten percent moisture analog range.
      • Incorporates output adjustment for the optimization of PLC or recording requirements.
